We offer a full selection of electric and gas water heaters to accommodate your needs. Not sure what type of water heater would be the best option for your family? Our highly skilled plumbers can help recommend the right system for your home's requirements.
If you're running out of hot water too quickly, either your water heater is not sized properly and upgrading to a higher capacity tank might need to be considered. You may also have a defective component hindering its performance, slowing down recovery or misreading the temperature value of the water available inside the tank.
Hybrid Water Heaters
Heat pump water heater hybrid systems are quickly becoming popular for homeowners. Our professionals at Everest Plumbing can explain how this system works, the benefits, and why it adds value to your home.
For many years, homeowners were limited to two water heater options – tankless and tank-type. These two types of water heaters were either electric or gas. Now a third option, the electric hybrid water heater, is available. The electric hybrid is 3.5 times more efficient and reliable and requires fewer installation modifications than the standard tankless or tank-type water heaters.
When to Replace Your Water Heater
Many homeowners might not think about water heater installation until replacing their old unit. Often, it’s easy to forget that you need a new unit unless it’s malfunctioning. However, there are many tell-tale signs that your unit has reached the end of its useful life.
- Water discoloration: Rusty water when you run your hot water is a good indication that your system is worn out.
- Drop in hot water pressure: If your cold water seems to come out fine but your hot water comes out slowly or inconsistently, you might have to replace your tank.
